The Low Down

COMO Uma Bhutan, comprised of two award-winning lodges, COMO Uma Punakha and COMO Uma Paro — voted best and second-best hotels in Asia, respectively, by Condé Nast Traveler — takes you to the heart of the ethereal Himalayan Kingdom. COMO Uma Paro is situated on the cusp of the Paro Valley, with sweeping views of the pristine mountains from the 38-acre estate, made up of 20 rooms and nine villas.
